FREE SKIN CANCER SCREENINGS OFFERED BY THE SOUTH BEND CLINIC
The South Bend Clinic will offer free skin cancer screenings at their Ironwood location.
Dr. Cynthia Mayfield will provide skin screenings on Saturday May 20th from 9 am-12pm at South Bend Clinic Ironwood, 2102 E. Inwood Road, South Bend.
Appointments for the screenings are required and can be made by calling 574-204-6000. Patients without a dermatologist are encouraged to attend. Current estimates are that 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime. “The key to the successful treatment of most types of cancer is early detection and treatment” says Dr. Mayfield.
The screenings are sponsored by the American Academy of Dermatology as part of a national campaign to encourage early detection and teach prevention of skin cancer. Education materials from the Academy will be provided to all participants.
